Product description

Philip Yancey reveals the real Jesus beyond the stereotypes, revolutionizing the reader's passion for Christ, and offers a new and different perspective on the life of Christ and his work - his teachings, his miracles, his death and resurrection - and ultimately, who he was and why he came. Relating the gospel events to the world we live in today, "The Jesus I Never Knew" gives a moving and refreshing portrait of the central figure of history. Yancey looks at the radical words of this itinerant Jewish carpenter and asks whether we are taking him seriously enough.

Customer reviews

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"This book puts flesh to the images we may have of Jesus. If you have questions or want to understand him more this is the place to start. An amazing book about a very amazing man.This will make you think no matter where your coming from for or against. Read, think and then decide."

Back cover copy

'There is no writer in the evangelical world that I admire and appreciate more.' Billy Graham Philip Yancey helps reveal what two thousand years of history covered up What happens when a respected Christian journalist decides to put his preconceptions aside and take a long look at the Jesus described in the Gospels? How does the Jesus of the New Testament compare to the 'new, rediscovered' Jesus---or even the Jesus we think we know so well? Philip Yancey offers a new and different perspective on the life of Christ and his work---his teachings, his miracles, his death and resurrection---and ultimately, who he was and why he came. From the manger in Bethlehem to the cross in Jerusalem, Yancey presents a complex character who generates questions as well as answers; a disturbing and exhilarating Jesus who wants to radically transform your life and stretch your faith. The Jesus I Never Knew uncovers a Jesus who is brilliant, creative, challenging, fearless, compassionate, unpredictable, and ultimately satisfying. 'No one who meets Jesus ever stays the same, ' says Yancey. 'Jesus has rocked my own preconceptions and has made me ask hard questions about why those of us who bear his name don't do a better job of following him.'
